The Material Boy #455

Below: Bryanboy’s coverage of Thai Designer JBB* by Jirawat Bote Benchakarn’s Fall Winter 2011 menswear collection (at the recent Singapore Mens Fashion Week) inspired me for some military fashion inspirations this Monday. I need to combat serious Monday blues!

Below: Love these pieces from MR PORTER that carries the military flavour without being too literal...

Below: Most of all, I want this pair of Trussardi 1911 Camouflage Print Espadrilles!
Military Monday: 'Butch' Up!

Inspired by Bryanboy’s pics covering Thai Designer JBB* by Jirawat Bote Benchakarn’s Fall Winter 2011 menswear collection (Shown at the recent Singapore Mens Fashion Week 2011)... I decided I am going to seek ‘military retail enlightenment’ today. Love JBB* by Jirawat Bote Benchakarn’s take on Military Camouflage pattern, pairing it with refined sartorial suiting and shorts. Not entirely a new idea, but I love the contrast these looks create.

Hence, I browsed online and found these lovely pieces to share here. Pieces that fit the military theme without going too literal. Trussardi 1911 has an amazing pair of camouflage print espadrilles (¥43,050) that presents a relax resort feeling...while ready to rough it out in any terrain:-)

Marni’s contrast panel short sleeve shirt (£196) is perhaps the army version of colour blocking, using jersey and cotton fabrics in olive and black tones for effective panelling effect. I love the way the back of the shirt looks... it’s a timeless and interesting piece that will command attention! I also love Burberry Brit’s dark olive green slim fit cargo trousers (£125), which breaks away from the sloppy looser versions and gets you into a more streamlined and smarter silhouette.

Wear all the above pieces together then round it up with Trussardi’s Camouflage Print Laptop Sleeve (use it as a clutch!) ... tada... you have a hot military look, ready to brave thru any Monday Blues!
